A comprehensive report on Open Educational Resources (OER) is now available.

The report is specifically tailored for educational institutions, prospective educators, and OER developers and provides a practical guide for the evaluation of both existing and newly created OER, offering valuable insights to enhance educational practices.

Key Highlights of the Report:

Practical Evaluation Framework: The report introduces OER assessment system that furnishes a practical and user-friendly tool for evaluating the quality and effectiveness of existing or newly developed OER. This framework is designed to facilitate a seamless integration of OER into educational settings.

Literature Review Support: For individuals engaged in research or those seeking a deeper understanding of OER-related topics, the report includes a comprehensive literature review.

Ideas for Educational Institutions: Educational institutions will find the report particularly beneficial as it offers practical ideas on how to integrate and implement OER in their teaching practices. The framework serves as a guide for educators, providing inspiration and strategies for maximizing the impact of OER on student learning experiences.

The report is made under the project Gate2Math. The project´s primary objective is to establish a comprehensive, multilingual open library dedicated to mathematical resources. A web-based platform is being developed, which will provide educational materials for both educators and students in the form of Open Educational Resources (OERs). These resources will be available in both the national language and English and will encompass various formats such as short videos, animations, puzzles, and worksheets.

Gate2Math is financed by Erasmus+, the EU’s program to support education, training, youth, and sport in Europe, developed in close cooperation with six partner universities across Europe and led by TTK University of Applied Sciences in Estonia.

Participate in the new international Blended Intensive Program in Estonia

We invite all higher education mathematics and statistics teachers to participate in the new Blended Intensive Program (BIP) taking place online on 3rd of April and psysically in Tallinn (Estonia) from 8 to 12 April 2024 at TTK University of Applied Sciences.

This BIP is set to introduce participants to the concept of Open Educational Resources (OERs), evaluation criteria, and creating high-quality resources. The program comprises diverse activities aimed at advancing mathematics education and providing hands-on experiences for participants. The program offers opportunities in digital education and professional development.

Key Themes:
– Understanding the concept of OERs and evaluation criteria.
– Familiarization with the Gate2Math smart library and its content.
– Exploring various applications for creating mathematical OERs.
– Interactive learning materials design workshops.
– Designing a possible BIP curriculum for students using OERs.
– Introduction to digital learning practices at Estonian universities.

Register already today or no later than 03.03. 2024
NB! BIP is limited to 15 participants!
